Well, sure a test suite would be nice. It would be also nice if
someone with some experience in them would create the beginnings of
it. I've some vague ideas about how it could work, but my past test
suite experience is pretty small.

I was thinking that the IMAP test suite could be useful also outside
Dovecot. There's been talk about such test suite once in a while in
imap-protocol list. So it could check for both basic protocol
compliance and for specific bugs in different servers.
